Why can’t I log-in to the Discussion Forums?

If you’re having trouble logging into the discussion forums there are a couple of possible answers.

  • If you are a member of SFWA, you need a different password from the one that you use here to manage your account.  If you did not receive that, send an email to secretary@sfwa.org and we’ll resend your information.
  • Q: I have the correct username and password, but still can’t login. Why?
    A: This is usually related to cookies.

    1. Go to the Discussion Forums
    2. Scroll to the bottom of the page
    3. Click “Delete all board cookies
    4. Shut your browser completely and restart it.
    5. Return to the Discussion Forums and try again.

    Let us know and we’ll troubleshoot.

  • If you are not a member of SFWA, sorry, the discussion boards are members only.

    I’m a life member and it wants a password, but I can’t find a place to register in the first place. Is this because it’s beta?

    I just sent you an email with login instructions for the main site. The discussion forums, for very dull reasons, use a different login which I’m sending by hand during the beta test.
